    Seeing I'm so close to Marion, I'd be there. I'm literally a stone's throw from the VA border.

    I'm thinking spring, I know I'll have more stuff then but we could possibly do both, kinda runnin out of good weather for a fall one. I think we'd need at least 10 people interested don't ya'll?? Also would we want to advertise for others to come or just BYC people??

    The reason I ask if it should be just us, I'm afraid and outsider could bring in some sickly stuff??

    Well, if we open it up to all then we could turn them onto BYC...lol.

    I'm great at flyers, brochures etc. I would be happy to make that my contribution [​IMG]

    I am not so great at organizing games and activities. Maybe we could ask Shelley about the recent one in KY.

    I can get sponsors from Abingdon like the feed stores. I think there is a TSC in Marion isnt there PP?

    Too bad you didnt want to do it sometime this october i have plenty of small chicks and baby muscoveys. Do you want to do all small animals like rabbits and guinea pigs and things like that.

    Quote:I'm fine with advertising to others. The sponsors would be great as well. Yeah there is a TSC in marion and a Farm Bureau in Chilhowie as well.

    We can Plan one in October if enough is interested
